Pond Garden at Tofukuji Temple - the head temple of the Tofukuji School of the Rinzai sect of Zen Buddhism. Its original buildings were burned but were rebuilt in the 15th century according to the original plans. About this time it flourished as one of the Five Great Temples of Kyoto. In addition to the pond garden, the main building of the temple is surrounded by gardens unique in Japan.
